Graduate and professional schools have unique student populations with very different needs from the undergraduate students. Large universities tend to cater to the needs of the many (undergraduates) rather than the few (graduate/professional students). How can a financial aid administrator at a law, medical, or other graduate school make sure their students are getting the service they need, while working within the university structure? Find out how three law schools are managing this challenge, and then join an open discussion on more best practices.
